“My hope for Tokyo: Morgan Hurd, Angelina Melnikova, and Chen Yile all make the AA final. It’d be the perfect end to their documentary series.”

Coach Wang Qunce and Xu Jinglei have taken their training team to 

Guangzhou to train for three weeks over the Spring Festival. It is in southern China where temperatures are milder (60-70

ºF.) The team includes Liu Tingting, Chen Yile, Ou Yushan, Li Shijia, and Guan Chenchen (and I would assume Yin Sisi, since it says there are six team members there but then only lists five. Yin Sisi is also in Wang’s group.)

The article says they trained through the New Year and did not take a day off. Chen Yile and Liu Tingting’s parents both were able to come for a brief visit, since they live in the area.  

Chen Yile says she thinks the experience of competing in two World Championships will help her not be as nervous. Her goal is to return to her 2017 form and compete for a spot on the Tokyo team. She wants to improve every event, and specifically wants to up her BB difficulty. 

Liu Tingting says winter training is going well for her. She has been waiting for four years and is very eager to prove herself at the Olympics (Tingting originally made the Rio team, but injured her hand and was replaced with alternate Tan Jiaxin.) She thinks her problems at 2019 Worlds were mental and wants to overcome that with more training. She says she won’t change much this year, but wants to improve her BB score and upgrade vault to DTY. 

“Can not believe how the Chinese coaches are treating their gymnasts after watching all around I felt so bad for Chen Yile – go and watch it if you haven’t. Idk how but someone needs to make some changes there”

“After watching All Around, I don’t think I can stand it if Morgan, Gelya, or Chen Yile don’t make the Olympics”

“I was so happy to see Chen Yile win best female athlete at the Asian Games! I hope her injuries don’t hold her back in 2020!”

“i feel like people have forgotten so i’m here to remind you chen yile placed top 8 at doha aa, if she can stay injury free i would love to see her in beam finals and possibly aa if she’s on top of her game in 2020″

“With Morgan not making the 2019 Worlds team and Russia being banned from the Olympics, the All Around member with the most probabilities of representing their country in Tokyo is shaping to be Chen Yile, and isn’t THAT a surprise?”

“I hope The All Around trio can all make the Olympic team”

“I love how gymnastics is expanding. In the 2012 all around final, 8 of the top 9 gymnasts were from the big four countries (USA, Russia, China, Romania). In the 2018 world all around final, the top 8 gymnasts were from 7 different countries.”
